The production of accurate, well-coordinated plans and specifications is very important to minimize change orders and optimize field administration. TCI will perform a constructability review as a cross check on construction documents for accuracy, completeness and systems coordination. This process begins during the later stages of construction document preparation and is completed prior to contractor bidding. During the review, we identify potential coordination issues, missed details, time delays, potential liability and intercontractor coordination items prior to publishing bid documents, allowing the design team to review and implement appropriate changes to the documents.
Making informed decisions during preconstruction is crucial to achieving a smooth construction process with added value and minimized risk. Our team’s role is to make certain that ideas and alternatives are accurately evaluated early in the project process. Our expertise, effective management systems and innovative thinking ensures that the right issues are identified, addressed and solved before construction begins. Our team is committed to working as strategic partners with our clients, the design team and the project team during the preconstruction phase.
The best foundation for a successful project starts with a comprehensive construction estimate. TCI provides researched, unbiased and accurate estimates, prepared by estimators skilled in labor productivity, material pricing and construction methodologies. Our qualified staff includes expertise in all disciplines including civil, architectural, structural, mechanical and electrical. TCI has the experience necessary for any estimating effort in tenant improvements and single or two story buildings.
Our project managers and site superintendents are responsible for ensuring the project is completed per the clients time frame and quality expectations. Part of the process in achieving this success is based on regular communication with the client, the design team and all stakeholders.
The Construction Process includes:
Site supervision and field dimension verification
Safety for all workers
Owner vendor coordination
Scheduling with all subcontractors, owner vendors and materials suppliers
Plan your work and work your plan. Benefits to a schedule are improved communications between the contractor and subcontractors and between the owner and contractor during the course of construction. Whether using a bar chart, arrow diagram or a precedence diagram, maintaining control of your project is one of the keys to success.
